Werner Zen 85 1-Piece SUP Paddle - The Zen 85 1-Piece SUP Paddle by Werner blends perfection in craftsmanship and materials for a stiff, light, elegant looking blade, and when you add new HD Graphics inspired by the original artwork of paddler-artist, Jessica Melger, you have a true work of art. The longer, rectangular, slender blade design of the Zen is easier on the body with a more gentle catch. It allows for higher cadence and less fatigue without sacrificing blade size and power. A fiberglass blade and carbon blend shaft gives you a compromise between swing weight and value.

The dihedral blade directs water to flow evenly off each side of the blade creating a smooth and stable stroke. It has a 10 degree shaft to blade offset designed to keep the blade more vertical through the power phase, it benefits your forward paddling, but still gives the surfer a good compromise in the waves. It is perfect for the paddler who does a bit of everything, some touring, surfing, fishing, fitness, the compromise for forward paddling and bracing is 10 degree.

The Zen has an A carbon shaft that helps keep the overall weight down, and a perfect overall flex to the paddle. It is designed to give you more comfort and control and to be able to feel the precision of every one of your strokes. The ABS palm grip is the most comfortable grip on the market today. You will be able to keep a loose grip, even in the toughest of conditions, while the width enables more blade control. A loose grip reduces fatigue and wear and tear on your joints. Before even getting to the water you will feel the balance and see the beauty of the Werner Zen 85 1-Piece SUP Paddle.

General SUP Sizing Guidelines:

  • Surf/Whitewater – add approximately 8” to your height

  • Tour/Race/Fitness/Yoga - add approximately 10” to your height
  • Note: Paddle length may vary depending on conditions and personal preference. Please use these sizing charts as a general guideline

    SUP Small Fit: Available on Werner's most popular SUP paddles, you can now match smaller blades with a small diameter shaft and innovative small sized grip. Performance starts with the proper fit and you will immediately be able to grasp with a lighter grip for better technique and to eliminate fatigue. To see if Small Fit is best for you, measure your hand size by placing a ruler at the base of your hand (at the joint of your wrist) and measuring to the tip of your middle finger. If you measure smaller than 6.5" we suggest small shaft. Longer, go to the standard shaft. Paddlers with shorter, thicker fingers also gravitate to small shafts. Get more control and more comfort with Werner Small Fit.
